1.7 million people are newly infected with HIV every year. According to the new #GlobalAIDSstrategy , investments for primary HIV prevention must be radically scaled up! Find out more 👇🏾

Every week, around 5500 young women aged 15–24 years become infected with HIV. To end AIDS, women and girls must be able to make their own decisions about their bodies! Read the latest edition of @UNFPA ’s State of World Population report, #MyBodyIsMyOwn .

#COVID19 has caused disruptions to HIV services as high as 75% in some countries. New analysis shows that the benefits of continuing to provide life-saving HIV services outweigh the risk of COVID-19 transmission by 100 to 1.

Without early diagnosis and treatment, about half of infants living with HIV die by the age of two years. But in many in low- and middle-income countries there is unequal access to early infant diagnosis, as this graph of the Caribbean shows 👇🏾

Access to #COVID19  vaccines is fast becoming the defining barometer of inequality. "This tragically echoes the early days of the AIDS response when treatment was only available to the rich, while poorer countries had to wait years," says @Winnie_Byanyima . Read more via @wef  👇🏾

Everyone has the right to live with respect and dignity. Join us and be part of the #ZeroDiscrimination  movement.

When girls go to school, they are less likely to marry early and their risk of getting HIV decreases by 50%. Demand#ZeroDiscrimination  for all.

Sex workers have the same rights as everyone else. Their rights must be respected.
